San Francisco Chamber Music Society Concert (pieces by Pauline Oliveros, Ramon Sender, Morton Subotnick, Robert Moran, Doulgas Leedy, Anthony Gnazzo and Charles Shere), 1976


Published November 15, 1976


San Francisco Chamber Music Society Concert from November 15, 1976. The most unconventional composers in the Bay Area at the time, presented on a series usually host to more conventional classical music. Imagine a fish aquarium with staff lines drawn on it. Now play the fish as they move up and down the scale in the bowl. You have the concept of this infamous work that, for a short time, became the talk of the town here in San Francisco.

Subject: Wonderful!
A great recording of works I was just reading about in "The San Francisco Tape Music Center: 1960s Counterculture and the Avant-Garde". Nice to be able to hear versions of these pieces (although recorded about 10 years after the Tape Center was over with).
